Dr. Dennis Bortey, a medical doctor says sex gives a rapid cure to a headache than any medicine.
He encouraged couples to as often as possible to prevent diseases because sex, according to him is medicinal.
Dr. Bortey in a panel discussion recounted a story of a patient who came to him for medical attention but upon examination, directed that he goes home and have sex.
“If you have a bad headache, have sex….it is very medicinal. I asked one patient have you had sex, you know what, go home have rough sex, go hit it. I bet anybody to try it if you have a bad headache”, he said.
The doctor condemned the Ghanaian attitude of seeing sex as taboo, which is hardly discussed or talked about. The doctor said, “We need to demystify that”.
For people who do not have sexual intercourse regularly, he had bad news for them saying they look older than their ages. Using himself as an example, Dr. Bortey said, people continuously doubt he is 44 years because he does not look it, “thanks to good sex.”
He said, one secret of sex is that it makes people glow.
“I know a lot of people who are 35-36 and they look like they are in their 50s and immediately I mention my age….and you see, the people who don’t have sex they look older ….sex is a good thing, it makes you younger all the time,” he said.
The more you have, the more glowing you look, be it a man or a woman. But you see, we have put mysticism about sex, it’s a cultural thing, it’s bad…. yes but if you do it in the right context, it is the best of things”, he added.
